Do the rich always get richer?
Coming off a torn ACL, the former college running back has faced a questionable market. Had he not been injured, Melton would have been one of the top free agent defensive linemen to open free agency.
Last season, the Seahawks inked Bennett to a one-year "prove-it" contract that worked out swimmingly. There is certainly a chance general manager John Schneider could employ that strategy again this season with Melton.
UPDATE: After his visit in Seattle, Melton will head to his home state of Texas to visit with the Dallas Cowboys in the next few days, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport Reported. Melton is a favorite of Cowboys defensive coaches. He worked with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli with the Chicago Bears. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill first reported the news.
Here are some other notable visits happening Friday:
» Emmanuel Sanders is visiting Friday with the Kansas City Chiefs, Rapoport reported, per a person who had spoken to the receiver. The receiver visited the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday and is scheduled to see the 49ers on Saturday.
» Steve Smith will visit the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Of note: The Ravens will host the Carolina Panthers in 2014, which would give Smith a chance for his "blood and guts" revenge.
» Offensive tackle Michael Oher is visiting the Tennessee Titans on Friday and then will visit the Oakland Raiders, per Rapoport. ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky first reported the Titans visit. Tennessee also will host Kansas City Chefs linebacker Akeem Jordan, per The Tennessean.
» The Buffalo Bills announce the visits of linebacker Brandon Spikes and running back Anthony Dixon. Spikes, an inside 'backer would make sense as the Bills play to move rookie sensation Kiko Alonso to outside linebacker.
